A five-year-old boy was shot thursday at night when a group of teenagers filmed a video to publish it on social networks, the Brooklyn Park police reported, in the north of the United States.
It is suspected that another child, 13, triggered accidentally when he manipulated a weapon, said the police on Facebook. The young man was arrested and put in custody in a minor center.
"Several other minors were present" at the drama scene, a house of this suburb of Minneapolis where young people "rolled a film for social networks," according to the statement.
According to the Gun Violence Archives website, firearms were charged at least 35th lives on Thursday, when Americans celebrated Thanksgiving, one of the most popular parties in the country.
A 25-year-old man was in turn killed in Philadelphia for a lost bullet as he dined with his family.
Likewise, the police are looking for a 19-year-old girl suspected of shooting after being expelled from another party in a nearby house, according to the local subsidiary of NBC.
Violence with firearms has increased since the start of the pandemic in the United States.
More than 40,000 people have died for that cause since the beginning of the year, including suicides, according to the archive of armed violence. Among them include 274 children under 12 years of age.Updated Date: 27 November 2021, 19:46
